Our design and fabrication team work closely with customer design teams from concept through to production, optimizing the exhaust system configuration, manufacturing methods and material specification.

Our CAD designers and exhaust fabrication technicians have over 20 years of experience of working with some of the most highly respected and successful racing car designers, aerodynamicists and engineers from Formula 1, Le Mans and WRC.

Customer CAD models and those produced in house are used for designing manufacturing jigs and producing information for the fabrication engineers for planning and production purposes.

Primary Designs uses Siemens Solid Edge ST8 3D CAD software integrated with our custom developed version of Siemens Xpress Route which is a unique software package developed for 3D tube design, allowing virtual rapid prototyping and thus greatly reducing the design time of tubular components such as exhaust systems, cooling and oil systems or roll cages.

We can share information in most CAD formats commonly used in Motorsport (STEP, IGES, DXF,Catia etc).

We also have the ability to reverse engineer customer parts into 3D CAD models using our Faro fusion measuring arm, Faro CAM 2 software and Solid Edge. From this we can produce CAD models to enable us to re-manufacture parts from supplied samples.


  Faro measuring arm

As exhaust packaging becomes more complex, the challenges continue to grow for the engineers at Primary Designs, with the need for precision jigging systems and the ability to measure exhaust systems being a major factor in exhaust design and manufacture (read more)

Faro portable measuring arms make measuring complex objects easy. This includes inspection, alignment, calibration, reverse engineering and as-built documentation with accuracy up to 16 microns 
     
  Jig and tooling design and manufacture

Our jig and tooling designers have all initially trained as skilled exhaust fabricators so have extensive knowledge of all manufacturing requirements of jigs and fixtures.

This knowledge results in jig designs that can easily be worked with by the exhaust-manufacturing technicians which will, in turn save time in manufacture and guarantee consistent quality in the production of exhaust parts.(read more)
